LONDON AND MIDDLESEX COMMUNITY HOUSING ANNOUNCES SOUTHDALE AS FUTURE SITE FOR FIRST-EVER REGENERATION PROJECT
LONDON, ONTARIO - London and Middlesex Community Housing (LMCH) is proud to announce its first-ever regeneration project: “Project Reimagine” at their Southdale site.
Chosen for its location, proximity to amenities, surrounding community resources; and potential for growth and development, Southdale is a prime location for LMCH’s inaugural project.
As outlined in Business Case #21 (pg. 195), this renewed development will continue to be home for existing tenants. This will allow LMCH to renovate current units and build more units to welcome additional residents in the future.
Project Reimagine will see LMCH work alongside and consult over 150 families currently living at Southdale to rebuild a neighbourhood that reflects their diverse needs and nurtures community growth.
Through collaborative conversations, LMCH will actively engage and learn from tenants how their homes can be improved upon and better supported.
Construction is expected to start in the spring of 2023, aimed to complete by 2025.
London & Middlesex Community Housing provides 3, 282 housing units across 31 properties for more than 5,000 people. LMCH is the largest Rent-Geared-to-Income housing provider in London and Middlesex County.
About Project Reimagine:
Regeneration is the process of redeveloping land parcel(s) with broad objectives of attracting economic investment to encourage revitalization, employment, and improved living environments for its residents. In the LMCH context, Project Reimagine also holds other specific goals, including improving existing neighborhoods to make them more supportive and inclusive as communities that are also socially and financially sustainable and healthy in the long-term.
Following the City of London’s Strategic Plan, the London Plan, LMCH’s 2017-2020 Strategic Plan, the approved 2020-2023 budget (pg. 79) and LMCH’s 2020-2034 Asset Management Plan, this development will align with LMCH’s goals to continue supporting the most vulnerable in the community.
